  • Santa’s Calling, Dec. 11 and 12 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. 
    Santa will take a couple of hours out of his busy schedule to call children about the presents they hope to receive and can mention personal details such as the name of their pet, and keeping their rooms clean so they won’t find themselves on the naughty list. The program is designed for children in pre-kindergarten through second grade and is made possible by the Cleveland County Court House and NP&R. Calls will be made between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
